What is a Twist Pile Carpet?

Twist pile carpets have been created using a tightly twisted yarn which has been set to form a slightly textured surface. Twist style carpets are available in both plain and heather styles, to suit any home. (Heathers are created with a combination of coloured fibres to create a tonal style carpet).

Durability of Twist Pile Carpets

Twist carpets can be incredibly durable. Carpets with a tight twist and a short pile are very resistant to crushing and matting, keeping its shape for years to come. The tighter and shorter the twist, the more durable the carpet, making many twist pile carpets suitable for use throughout the home – even on staircases.

Twist pile carpets have many benefits, from maintenance to longevity. Firstly, the twisted style of the carpets helps to disguise spills and stains on the carpet, hiding any wear and tear your carpet may endure. Secondly, unlike loop pile carpets, twist carpets are suitable for home with pets, as there is no risk of claws getting stuck in the looped fibres of the carpet. Available in a wide range of colours and styles, there is certainly a twist pile carpet for every home, whether you are looking for a heather carpet (with a blend of colours), a pattered carpet or a single colour, Joe Walker’s Flooring has the twist pile carpet for you.


A twist pile carpet can be a great addition to any room in your home, however there are a couple of things you should bear in mind when buying a twist pile carpet. Like all carpets, twist pile carpet can shed when they are first installed, however overtime, the shedding will reduce until it is unnoticeable. Again, similar to all carpets, if heavy items are left on the carpet for long periods of time (years), it may cause some indentations in the carpet, fortunately, this can be easily fixed by adding some moisture to the area.
